She has authored or coauthored more than 150 peer-reviewed papers and book chapters and 270 scientific communications. Over the years, she has been awarded multiple times. Her work has clearly led the path and truly made an outstanding contribution to improve estimations of supply and requirements of B vitamins. In a perspective of precision farming to optimize metabolic efficiency, meeting dairy cow requirements for B vitamins cannot be overlooked.
